As for the Liberals, their Conference was a catalogue of mishaps with the odd disaster thrown in, amid a foam-flecked tirade of abuse aimed at [...]

His latest wheeze, in his new book, Revolution, is to cancel all personal debt. After all, so his stunted thinking goes, the banks were bailed out in the financial crisis in 2008, and that had little effect. As he puts it, “Aside from a few people carrying plants out of their offices in cardboard boxes, [...]

And so he surely knows the story that crops up through European history, in France in 1789, and Russia in 1905 as well as [...]

As Labour and the Conservatives ponder their respective setbacks at Ukip hands today, it’s worth pondering the similarities in the two big party’s approach to their new challenger.

Nigel Farage gambled, and Nigel Farage won. On the day of his speech to Ukip conference I explained how the leader of the People’ Revolution had rolled the dice by pledging to park his tanks on Labour’s lawn in Heywood and Middleton. “9 October was supposed to be Ukip’s purple letter day,” I wrote. “the [...]
